You are missing \ before the parenthesis. This \ is used for string interpolation in Swift.



Also you need to replace '=' with 'is' as per the requirements.

Hi Hannu, thanks for you help....In the code I have the \ however for some reason it didn't show up when I pasted the code into the question area. However let me try your suggestion with the '='

Many Thanks

HI Hannu, it was the replacement of '=' with 'is'...thanks again
